Abstract

Local geothermal gradients in South Iraq were used in calculating the time-temperature indices of source rock Previous HitmaturationTop, as modified by Waples (1980). Accordingly, Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic and probably Paleozoic rocks are calculated to be within the thermal petroleum generative zone in several parts of southern Iraq.
